About this event

Welcome to the latest SFiO Global Chapter - the first in a new series, that highlight SF authors and their book relevant to Solution Focus in organisations. Timed for Americas and Asia-Pacific. It will be filmed for InterAction.

This is your chance to hear an interview with Haesun about her book, her favourite and most memorable chapters and her answers to your questions.

Have you ever wondered why authors write their books and why they write them in a certain way? This interview will explore what made Haesun write her book, particularly how she wrote it. Coaching A-Z: The Extraordinary Use of Ordinary Words has only been in circulation for a few months, yet has gained widespread appeal globally. That appeal stems from how she describes Solution Focus techniques in her conversations with others by sharing personal and professional anecdotes.

As well as hearing the background to the book, we will also explore:

  1. What people are connecting with?

  2. What was Annette and Haesun’s favourite chapter?

  3. What was Haesun’s most memorable chapter when writing the book?

  4. If you read the book what was your favourite chapter, and with what did you connect?

You will also have the opportunity to ask Haesun some of your questions.
